On the weekend I went to the combat rules playtest for a new Melbourne based LARP, Blackpowder and Bloodlines. It felt like an incredibly useful day and I’m extremely excited for the first official game. I haven’t settled on a character yet and we didn’t need to attend in costume but why miss an opportunity to dress up? First time wearing my 14ty century cotehardie in play. I’m pleased to say it was both comfortable and warm. :)
Shout out to the organizers for being so awesome and bringing a great group of people together! Not to mention their meticulous attention to detail, taking on player feedback and incredible world building, some of which can be found on their website:
I’m sure in the coming months I’ll have a lot more to say about this LARP. Stay tuned!
